Digimon Adventure 02
Tapirmon was a waiter in Digitamamon’s Chinese restaurant. He served Arukenimon and Mummymon the house's specialty, ramen soup. However, when Mummymon wanted to know the recipe, Tapirmon and Digitamamon refused to divulge its contents. When the DigiDestined arrived, a fight almost broke out, with Digitamamon and Tapirmon running for it with Mummymon close behind. He and Arukenimon followed them to a nearby forest, where they came across a natural spring – the spring where the soup came from, its taste provided by the power of the last remaining Destiny Stone.
Tapirmon and Digitamamon tried to stop Mummymon from sipping from the fountain but he bandaged them up and drank from the spring, causing the Destiny Stone to come to the surface. While the Digimon fought BlackWarGreymon, Arukenimon decided to take advantage and kill the defenseless kids but Digitamamon and Tapirmon attacked her and Mummymon so the kids could protect the stone. After everything got resolved, Digitamamon invited the gang all back to the restaurant for a victory meal.
Later on, a Tapirmon was amongst the many Digimon present during the final battle against MaloMyotismon.

He fights the Dark Masters as Megadramon, but the evil quartet has the upper hand. When the Dark Masters attack Maki and Daigo Nishijima, Megadramon shields them with his body and is injured. When the other Partner Digimon digivolve into the Harmonious Ones, Megadramon is sacrificed in order to defeat the Dark Masters. After that, he became incapable of becoming a Digi-Egg.
Maki's desire to see Tapirmon again would later lead her to help King Drasil's plan of rebooting the Digital World, as it would allow him to be reborn. After the Digital World is rebooted, Tapirmon is reborn but doesn't remember Maki. One night, he is picking flowers in a field and is sighted by Maki. Tapirmon doesn't believe her when she tells him he is her Partner and backs off, but this only makes Maki insane and order him to remember her.
